MFR TESTIMONIAL FROM BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR AUGUST 2014:
I had the pleasure of receiving Myofascial Release therapy from Jim Tillotson following my bilateral mastectomy. I was experiencing neck pain and shoulder pain coupled with limited range of motion in addition to tightness around the incisions and where my lymph nodes were removed.
Over the course of four treatments I experienced tremendous relief of my symptoms! I was able to enjoy our active family vacation of rafting, kayaking and hiking prior to my final reconstruction surgery. Jim taught me how to move without bracing and engage my muscles to alleviate the pain.
My reconstruction surgery went beautifully, with my plastic surgeon revealing I had minimal scar tissue damage. As a result I did not require any medication for pain post surgery past day 2, and am moving comfortably. I believe it was in large part to the MFR work we had worked on prior to surgery. Jim takes into account the whole body and person’s experience when treating them in a caring manner. It has made a lasting difference in my physical and emotional recovery from breast cancer. ...Jamee
